5 of 5 Incredible book with clear instructions and inform September 17, 2020
Reviewer: Jacob Woodruff from Lenoir, NC United States  
Out of the many books on broadsword, this has been one of my favorite resources so far. But I am by no means an expert.

5 of 5 Scorners of Death February 18, 2020
Reviewer: Matthew Miller from Birmingham, AL United States  
Cool book, delivered quickly, well worth the price.  The authors obviously possess a solid feel for the cateran's, the fighter's, place in Gaelic society, his weapons, weapons handling, and tactics.  I have spotted at least one blind spot so far in the text: reference to Gaelic swords' downsloping quillons as an "innovation" (p. 36).  Were these instead a partial survival - if a functional one - of ancient Gaelic anthropomorphic hilt style?  Moreover, curved lower hilts were hardly unknown during the Middle Ages in England and on the Continent.  This, however, is a minor point.  I expect the book will be recognized as a highly useful work.
